CDC Removes 24% of All Child Deaths from COVID-19 After Fixing “Coding Error”


And they wonder why less and less people trust the “authorities.”

After fixing a “coding error,” the CDC removed 24% of all child deaths as a result of COVID-19.

In other words, the reported child deaths from the pandemic were 24% too high.

We’re told to trust the experts.

We’re told never to question the science.

Yet time and time again, the CDC has had to backtrack.

How were child deaths over-reported by 24%?

Odds are that we’ll never know.

What’s even more confusing is that this was supposedly from a “coding error,” but how is such an error allowed to happen in the first place?

More details below:

Folks, this is a clean cut case of the experts being wrong.

Very long.

24% is not some minor “mistake.”

Yet, I have a feeling you won’t be hearing this from the mainstream media anytime soon!

The Washington Examiner confirms:

All-time pediatric deaths from COVID-19 reported on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID Data Tracker plummeted nearly 24% after the agency resolved a “coding logic error” on Wednesday.

The CDC’s COVID Data Tracker had presented a misleading impression prior to the fix that children were dying at a sharply amplified rate amid the omicron surge earlier this year. The tool had reported 1,755 all-time deaths from children ages 0 to 17 on Tuesday, with 738 of the deaths occurring during the first 10 weeks of 2022.

After CDC resolved the error, the pediatric death figure reported on its COVID Data Tracker dropped to 1,339 all-time deaths, a reduction of 23.7% from the figure reported the day prior.

“On March 15, 2022, data on deaths were adjusted after resolving a coding logic error. This resulted in decreased death counts across all demographic categories,” the data tracker said.

The CDC did not return multiple requests for comment.

Prior to the fix, the CDC’s data had been used as the basis for articles published late last week by the Guardian and the New York Post that reported as many as a third of all child deaths from COVID-19 had occurred since the beginning of 2022 amid the omicron surge.

“Children seem to be facing increasing risks as mask mandates are abandoned and vaccination rates stall,” the Guardian reported.

The article received a substantial amendment late Thursday after the reporter behind the piece deleted multiple tweets citing the CDC.

The article now cites data from the CDC’s weekly provisional data on COVID-19 deaths, which is based on death certificate data and states that 921 children ages 0 to 17 had deaths “involving COVID-19” since the start of the pandemic, a figure significantly smaller than the figure reported by the CDC’s COVID Data Tracker.

This raises the question: if the CDC got something this simple wrong, what else have they gotten wrong?

Look, we’re not trying to undermine our institutions.

Rather, we simply want transparency and accountability.

Shouldn’t that be the baseline of any democratically elected government?

The original statistics are what were cited to push the controversial vaccination program for children.

But shouldn’t parents be able to make the decision based on factual information?

It turns out that even the death count among children for COVID couldn’t be trusted!

What other basic information has the CDC gotten wrong?

Are there any other “coding errors” that need to be discovered and “fixed”?

The Epoch Times provides more details:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has removed tens of thousands of deaths linked to COVID-19, including nearly a quarter of deaths it had listed in those under 18 years old.

The health agency quietly made the change on its data tracker website on March 15.

“Data on deaths were adjusted after resolving a coding logic error. This resulted in decreased death counts across all demographic categories,” the CDC says on the site.

The CDC relies on states and other jurisdictions to report COVID-19 deaths and acknowledges on its website that the data is not complete.

But the statistics are often cited by doctors and others when pushing for COVID-19 vaccination, including figures who believe virtually all children should be vaccinated. Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the CDC’s director, cited the tracker’s death total in November 2021 while pushing for an expert panel to advise her agency to recommend vaccination for all children 5- to 11-years-old.

Before the change, the CDC listed 1,755 children as dying from COVID-19 along with approximately 851,000 others, according to Kelley Krohnert, a Georgia resident who has been tracking the updates.

The update saw the CDC cut 416 deaths among children and over 71,000 elsewhere, arriving at a total of just under 780,000.

The agency declined to provide a comment by deadline.

The CDC previously adjusted its death count in August 2021 “after the identification of a data discrepancy.”
